Nonprofit Profile

Narcotics Anonymous has been on and off in Shawano. The group is currently on a nine-month stretch.

"We're relatively new again," said a member. "All we can do is try."

Addiction affects every part of a person's life: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. NA describes addiction as a progressive disease with no known cure.

The Riverside Serenity Group meets once a week at 7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Shawano. Members go over the book and the steps and talk if someone is having a problem.

UFOs found in messy basement

My desire to sew has been hampered by my messy basement. All of the leftover fabric from previous projects sits helter skelter on my quilting table. Added to that are the UFOs that are sitting around, waiting.
